Careers at Principality Building Society

By J&C Team

For a building society that’s been around for nearly 160 years, Principality remains firmly focussed on the future…

The right culture is crucial to the continued success of Principality Building Society. ‘We have a goal in mind’, says Sue Lane, Group HR Director, ‘and are looking for creative, passionate and customer-focused individuals to come on board and help us shape and define our future’

Principality is the UK’s sixth largest building society, with 53 branches and 18 agencies across Wales and over the border. It is a mutual building society, which means it’s owned by – and run for – the benefit of its 500,000 members: the savers and borrowers.  Principality exists to help people prosper in their homes, at every stage of life. The Group’s principal strategy is focused on growing the Society.

Chief Executive Officer, Steve Hughes says: ‘Our dedicated colleagues throughout the group have our members and customers at the heart of everything they do. Building on our financial strength, we will seek to invest in our business and it will continue to be run for the benefit of our members’

As a business, Principality is keen to recruit talent individuals who are interested in joining a company in which they can really make a difference. Although the Society has been established for nearly 160 years, the society prides itself on a progressive culture, which encourages its employees to thrive.

It’s an exciting time to join us as we’re currently on a Group wide transformational journey that will see our brand, technology, colleague and customer offerings updated and enhanced to really put Principality on the map and make us a brand and employer of choice within Wales and beyond. This is supported by our recent sponsorship of the iconic Principality Stadium which has put us on a global stage.

As well as a great working environment with a strong family feel and plenty of opportunities for development and growth, you can expect a generous package that includes pension, bonus and incentive schemes, free life assurance cover, critical illness protection, private healthcare and the option to buy extra holiday each year. You can also be a part of our popular Sports & Social club which gives our colleagues access to discounted theatre, sporting and family events and to top it all off, we always have tickets up for grabs for the latest events at Principality Stadium!

As Principality colleagues, we want you to walk a mile in our customer’s shoes. This is why we provide all staff with £100 to open a savings account at your local branch to really feel a part of our core business. £100 also grants you voting rights at the Principality Annual General Meeting.
